Sunshine Come My Way Today!

Good morning Oddies!!  Another fabulous day to show off the next in line of new releases at Some Odd Girl today!  The set I am showing today is called Sunny Mae. 
I have a new card today and will show you one that I used the other day when I showed you the Emboss Resist tutorial. 

My card today is a post card style.  I used my circle Spellbinders to cut out a large circle 4.75" around out of watercolor paper.  I used the sun ray stamp element, white craft ink and white embossing powder to layer the rays all round the card.  I then went in with my Wild Honey and Scattered Straw Distress inks and blended them both together.  I sprayed the entire piece with my Pearlized water and zapped it with my heat gun to dry. 
I layered another circle in the center - this time using patterned paper from Recollections.  I backed it with a sturdy cardstock to give it a bit more stability.  I then took another smaller circle and stamped my sentiment.  I added the sweet cloud element from the set - stamped with black craft ink and heat embossed.  I sponged it with my Peacock Distress ink, trimmed it out and added it using 3-D foam adhesive. 
I added three self adhesive rhinestones as an added little touch. 

Here is the other card that I made using this beautiful set. 
And here is the post and tutorial that went along with it. 

Thanks, as always, for popping in today!!

Crafty Hugs!!
